What we expect of our members and their parents

Wear suitable clothing (including a helmet) for all cycling activity sessions, as agreed with the coaches.
Carry a card with their name, address, medical details, two emergency contact phone numbers.

Respect the rights, dignity and worth of all participants.
Treat all participants in cycling as they would like to be treated.
Cooperate with the coaches, helpers, club-mates and opponents.
Thank officials and opponents after competitions.
We expect parents, carers and other supporters to:
Provide the club’s officials and coaches with emergency contact numbers and information about any specific health requirements or medical conditions their child may have by completing the Club’s application and parental consent form, and advise them of any subsequent changes to this information.
Advise the coaches if their child has to leave early or is being collected by someone else, giving details of the arrangement.
Discourage unfair play and arguing with officials.
Help their child to recognise good performances, not just results.
Set a good example by praising fair play and applauding all good performances.
Never punish or chastise a child for losing or making mistakes.
